I am a 36 year old USA citizen with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. I am seriously thinking about moving to the Dominican Republic permanently after two separate trips. I would need a job once I got to Santo Domingo, Santigo, or Puerto Plata. How hard is it for an American to find a job in the Dominican Republic making at least 800 to 1000 a month USA dollars? I would need to rent an apartment, utilities, food, transportation,etc. I met Canadien women who have jobs on the beach in the restaurants in Cabarete who only make 200 USA dollars per month. I speak fluent English and a moderate amount of Spanish. Will being a graduate of an American university help me in the Dominican Republic job market? How much Spanish should I speak? What area of the country should I move to initially? Santo Domingo may be too overwhelming.
